Huma Abedin is not a typical congressional wife

(CNN) - When Rep. Anthony Weiner admitted Monday to sending inappropriate messages and photos "of an explicit nature" to women online, his wife of 11 months was not standing at his side. Huma Abedin was with another politician, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Abedin, 34, began working for Clinton as a White House intern in 1996, eventually becoming the former first lady's traveling chief of staff - or "body man" - during her campaign for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.

  1. Huh?

    And like Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin has extremely poor taste in men.

    @huh? and you have a very short memory (sandofrd, craig, ensign, gringrich, too many rethugs too little time to post).
    I am not saying that what he did was right but the rethugs have plenty of skeletons in their closet. Heck they have full cadavers tryuing to get out. while running on family values and bible thumping.
    I don't know much about wiener but I doubt he lied about being a choir boy . . . . . you know what I mean!

    Sounds like a women who deserves much more than a lying weiner. Dump the loser before he puts you through a lifetime of this humiliating rubbish.

    Don't worry once Weiner resigns, I am sure CNN has room for him next Eliot Spitzer.
    I guess it is a requirement to be scumbag in order to get in.

  9. Huh?


    My memory is better than yours.
    Do a Google search of Representative Chris Lee, R-NY. He pulled a similar stunt as Weiner and resigned before the end of the day.
    It is 5:12 pm and Weiner has not yet resigned.

    "Former President Bill Clinton officiated at their July 2010 wedding."

    There's the problem. That ol' rascal, Bill.

    Bad influence.
